N-Word Out

Empire star Terrence Howard thinks that the N-word should be used on his hit television show. Zo disagrees. Hear why on this episode of ZoNation.

    I could not agree with you more. I would love to post this video on my social page, but in my line of work it could have a negative outcome for me. Keep up the good work Oz.

      Gotta be PC?…..That’s part of what is wrong with our country now. Sad. Say what you feel, post what you feel is right…..nothing wrong with that.

  • Susan Lyons

    I really enjoy your posts, Zo.
    Now here in the south, we do use the word “special” in many different ways. As well as “Bless your heart.” Its all in the tone of voice.

    • J_R_K

      Susan, I don’t live down south, but, I was wondering… is it true that down south the plural for “y’all” is “all y’all” ? :o)

    • Susan Lyons

      It depends on where you live, I guess. Y’all is considered plural as far as I’m concerned. 🙂

    I with Terrence Howard on this. Or Richard Pryor, (That – Boy – is Crazy). I grew up with Dago, Pollock, Kike and of course Negro. They were just words then. Then are just words now. It’s the power this generation has given the words that makes this generation more crazy that Richard Pryor could ever be. You can use an ethnic slang in jest or you can use it in hate. Does it matter if you say F— this Black piece of S–t! versus F— this N—–. Is one really tender and loving?

    I don’t use N—– because it make me look like an idiot. But if you want to use whatever language you want (in my case I swear like a sailor) I’m not going to judge you on it, unless you are also showing me some anger or hate that isn’t deserved.

    As I was writing this I just watched a 400 pound Shaquille ONeil break dancing in a TV commercial. He just redefined N words being crazy. (Typed in caring and jest.)

    EXCELLENT!! Your videos just keep getting bettAH and bettAHHHH!! ; )

    • J_R_K

      Well said…. I don’t think I could have said it bettAAAHHHHHHH myself!

  • The show doesn’t need the word, and neither does anyone else! We need to retire the word. PERIOD.

    As an American, I’m appalled by the idea that there are certain words some fellow Americans would rather I not use. Words are just that, words.

    Every time I’ve been called a spic by crackers, gooks, wops, niggers, kikes, et al, it only served to reinforce the idea that those using those words were ignorant and stood in fear of me, the unknown.

    I’ll leave you with this from Eleanor Roosevelt:

    “No One Can Make You Feel Inferior Without Your Consent.”

    Zo, I love your videos, but I gotta tell you (and I hope it doesn’t ruin your life) that I’m a white guy. This is what I have learned as a white guy in America: The only racist word I can use is “Cracker”. There are two observations about the use of the word “Cracker” 1) I can use it because I’m white and 2) Everybody in the world of any other racial persuasion or skin color can call me “Cracker” because I’m white. I’ve heard that it isn’t even possible for anyone not white to be racist. I don’t understand that, but, given that my vocabulary allows me to use hundreds of other words to tell people what I think of their character, I guess it doesn’t matter. It does seem to me, though, that if people want the infamous “N-word” to die, they ought to have sense enough to stop using it. “Nothing pains some people more than having to think” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. Personally, I quit using the “N-word in 1968 when I said it to the wrong guy who was constantly calling me “Boy” and ended up spitting out teeth. I finally grew up to be an “equal opportunity” bigot. I hate arrogance, ignorance, stupidity and a bullying attitude no matter what skin color, ethnic background, religious persuasion, gender or gender preference they come in. But then, one of the serendipities of turning into an old man is that I don’t hang out in circles where I have to deal with any of that much. But it does pain me to see so many people being such a huge part of what’s killing America and American freedom…. just by refusing to think.

      Let’s not forget that those of us that are poor consider a cracker a square meal….LOL

    • J_R_K

      I know I ate a lot of cracker and mayonaise sandwiches when I was a kid. As we got older and moved on up, I started taking pinto bean sandwiches to school for lunch.. of course, the great thing about that is that the same kid wouldn’t steal your lunch more than once.

    • Sunshine Kid

      My thought as well, youngster (I got you by about 20 years). But then again, some crackers are not white, so if someone calls me cracker, I ask “Graham” or “Ritz”?

  • Silence Dogood

    Zo, one thing I have learned in my 50 years on this rock is that one word has only as much power as another gives it. With that said, the reason it is so powerful is because of the weak minded fools giving it such. Keep up the great work my brother….

  • MormonYoYoMan

    Shared (i.e. – “Swiped for my Facebook page”) and thoroughly enjoyed. Probably the best treatise on this topic. And Zo does the greatest Percival Pinkerton imitation during his commentary.

    (PS: “Treatise” may not be the best word to describe a video presentation of what would make a good research paper. Bids are up for a good word which is.)

  • Edward Quinones

    I’ve always liked Terrance and now I know why. Those hip hop guys … I have never liked.

    “F— that N—–!” A quote from yesterday’s basketball game. The country will be going nuts for a day or two, and then forget about it. Me? I loved the quote. It was directed from one man to another and a compliment about what a beast he was playing basketball.

    In different circumstances the player who said, ‘F— that N—–!” would be suspended for at least one game, if not longer. He would be harassed for the rest of his college career and it could haunt him into the pros.

    The reason it won’t is because it was a black man calling a white man ‘N—–!”


    This is the tough love I grew up with and the tough love that is being banished from our society. I hope absolutely nothing happens to Andrew Harrison, then if a white kid is ever caught using the same slur, nothing should happen to him either. Call it the first stage of true racial healing.

    Disagree with AR here. We can’t be afraid of words.
